Yeah, this one is really stumping me. I confirmed that the drive was autodetected and installed properly. The BIOS recognizes it as an "unknown device," but is still autorunning it as slave. Windows detects it as a local disk and shows the correct model number, but doesn't detect details like the drive type or the storage capacity. The PC I am using is a Dell Dimension, and the compatibility list for my HD lists Dell computers as being compatible (well, at least the Inspirons but that's because it's a mobility and I figured other fairly new Dells would work too). It's very strange that my HD would be completely locked up, but I'm starting to think maybe that's the case.
